Yes I am
On one hand, FVDI, NVDI, SpeedoGDOS manage correctly TTF fonts, so we'll find a solution, on the other configuration can be tricky, based on the system you use.
First thing that I will check, is to verify if your TTF fonts are corrupted or not? Many free TTF fonts on the net are know to give problems. Windows, Mac, Linux TTF font packs work perfectly. If you want to go GNU : http://www.gnu.org/software/freefont/
As far as your system is concerned, do you use NVDI?
If it's the case, TTF fonts must be managed by NVDI and not FVDI. Activating TTF in FVDI will crash the system. NVDI also needs some tweaks (deactivate all screen drivers in C:/GEMSYS) Basically FVDI will deal with the screen VDI side and NVDI will deal with the printer and font side
If you use only FVDI, your fvdi.sys config file should be a least like that :
Code: Select all
# fVDI configuration
PATH = C:\GEMSYS
fonts = c:\GEMSYS\TTF
01r aranym.sys mode 800x608x32@72
Finally, I don't know if Magic can work without NVDI. I have never tested, but ASH apps generally like to work together.
My setup is aranym + TOS 4.04 + Magic 6 + NVDI 5 + Videl Inside : it works perfectly at any resolution in 256c (ex : 1920x1200x8), TC works only up to 800x600 if I remember well and in TV mode, and it's highly compatible (Calamus, Photoline ..).
Your setup should be a bit faster and allows any resolutions @32bits with anti aliasing, but is less compatible.
